Slaven Bilic is on the verge of being sacked as West Bromwich Albion manager, British media reported.

Despite Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City bringing them an unexpected point in the battle to avoid relegation.

West Brom, who remain 19th in the table after the 1-1 draw at the Etihad, the club picked up only seven points from 13 games, their sole victory coming against Sheffield United late last month. They have also drawn four games and lost eight.

West Brom are due to hold talks with Bilic on Wednesday and despite winning promotion from the Championship last season, the club’s hierarchy feel a change is needed.

Bilic, 52, succeeded Darren Moore on a two-year contract last summer and led the club to promotion in his first season in charge.

“To be fair, I’m not bothered,” he told reporters.

“I’m doing my job. I’m enjoying it. I’m working hard for myself, for my staff, for the players, for the club, that’s all.

“Everything else is out of my control. I’m not really that bothered what’s happening behind the scenes. I don’t care.”

Sam Allardyce, Nigel Pearson, Mark Hughes and Eddie Howe are all reportedly candidates to replace the former Croatia and West Ham boss.
